Boy you know it's bad when you do that,

Holding out exactly what I want,

But you won't share.

I've never had a taste before,

But now you've got me wanting more

Nancy smiled to herself as the music floated around the café, blue eyes sparkling as she absorbed the homey feeling. A fleeting laugh broke through her now slightly parted lips as she remembered her reasons for coming there. Yet another case with the Hardy boys, and she was meeting with Frank to go over clues. No doubt 8am was much to early for the younger brother. Nancy's smile waned a bit as she thought of Ned, and the plans she'd had to cancel to make this meeting. Sighing, she dusted off her pants and stood to take a small walk to clear her head, just around the shop, and then back to her table.

Seated again, she lay her head in the palms of her hands, and closed her eyes. The warm summer sun filtered in through the window, and straight onto her back. She smiled at it's warmth as she waited for Frank to arrive with the case files. Thinking of Frank, her smile widened once again. He'd called her the previous night, asking if it was okay that she meet him for coffee this morning. Frank was always nervous around her, a trait she found quite endearing, though he tried to keep his calm.

You're playin' it cool,

I know what you do,

I feel like a fool,

But I would be feelin' it anyway,

Cause nobody loves me.

You're messin' around,

I figured you out,

You're takin' me down,

But I would be feelin it anyway,

Cause nobody loves me,

Like you do,

Mm, like you do.

She'd agreed without hesitation, and there she was. She had been planning to have breakfast with Ned, but she felt they were so close to a breakthrough on this case that she had to keep combing through until she found what she as looking for. She felt like the clue was right in front of her, sitting in her hands, she just had to grab it. And then there was Frank. Charming, chivalrous, dashing, smart, determined, caring, considerate, understanding, all of the things that Nancy could think that she'd want in a man. And, just about then, everything that she couldn't have. Her smile turned wistful at that, and she slowly blinked her eyes open, checking her watch. Frank should be arriving just about then.

And boy you know it's wrong when when you do that,

But you go there (you take me there).

You could lead me on or hang me out,

But don't you dare.

I've never had a taste before,

But now you got me wanting more.

You're playin' it cool,

I know what you do,

I feel like a fool,

But I would be feelin' it anyway,

Cause nobody loves me.

You're messin around,

I figured you out,

You're takin' me down,

But I would be feelin' it anyway,

Cause nobody loves me.

Like you do…

Like you do, like you do.

Nancy smiled yet again, as the music played around her. She watched people tap their pens, and their feet, along to the music. It was sweet and catchy. Exactly what she needed to be fully alert.

Oh boy you know it's bad when you do that,

But you don't care.

You're playin' it cool,

I know what you do,

I feel like a fool,

But I would be feelin' it anyway,

Cause nobody loves me.

You're messin' around,

I figured you out,

You're takin' me down,

But I would be feelin' it anyway,

Cause nobody loves me,

Like you do,

Like you do, (Cause nobody loves me)

Like you do,(You're messing around)

I figured you out,

You're takin' me down,

Like you do…

Nancy hummed along with the airy sound. Just then, Frank appeared, holding his own coffee, her favorite, and her favorite muffin split in two, to share. Sitting down across from her, the sun in his hair, he placed manila envelopes down in the shiny table. He grinned at her, a smile that lit up his whole face, even his eyes. Nancy's breath caught, as she felt herself smiling back.

"Boy, you know it's bad when you do that…" Frank glanced up at her as his head bent down to open the files.

"You say something, Drew?" Nancy put her head back and laughed, a tinkling sound. She shook her head and put her hands under her chin, as her eyes slowly traveled to his.

"No, Hardy. I didn't say anything. Nothing, nothing at all." While he nodded, his eyes told a completely different story. Nancy just supposed she'd have to figure it out later.

For now…they had a case to solve.
